swiss? danish? tongan? american red cross?

My brother and sister-in-law just had their first baby, of the girl variety. She is beautiful. She's also not really into pink, or so her hip parents tell me. So I remembered a quilt I saw on Kelly McCaleb's blog and was inspired to make something similar. (Kelly is very talented and even has a pattern on her etsy site for this quilt. I highly recommend purchasing it, as it would have been much easier and less time consuming if I'd had it.)
Here's the back.
Congratulations R + J and WELCOME baby Alice! Red is the new pink.

I love it, I remember Kelly's both are fabulous. Also I cannot believe you are quilting pregnant with twins! Do you get backaches?

liz and abby,
still working on final kitchen touches. soon.

kelly,
thanks for the inspiration. i don't know how you come up with such cute stuff! i'm a big fan!

nancy,
thanks. it is getting a bit awkward. mostly the cutting and laying everything out on the floor. but it's now or never, or at least "now or not for a long while."

I just wandered on your blog while visiting someone's blog who had left me a comment :) I love this quilt and the one below for your sister-n-law Liz and especially the 8 ball shirt. What an awesome idea for a pregnancy tee.

Have a great day!
